Hi,
Robin Kalhorn had posted the following links on the NEIAF Yahoo group. It's a colour film about pre-war NEI in four parts:

Part 1
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWFeVQoV ... re=related
Part 2
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqENNzU5 ... re=related
Part 3
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jl1pJssd ... re=related
Part 4
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luMGXq2mrY8

Among other interesting features are NEIAF Buffaloes and VVC Tiger Moths, but also the training of the Batavia Stadswacht, with 5 Overvalwagen (3rd film)

By the way, does anyone know how to save a You-tube film to computer?
Cheers!
Marc

Amazing pictures of the Stadswacht and the Dutch Navy! The years should be 1941-42. There's also a CMP truck at the end of film 3, Hanno!

Who knows how to grab some shots? I'd like the grab shots of the Overvalwagens and the Navy Bofors 7,5cm L55s....

Thanks, Marc!

The You-tube film should be cached on you computer's hard disk, but in this case if you look up the source you can save the files on your own harddisk

I think I saw two Jeep´s. Anyhow I think this part of the movie is from Dec 1941 or early 1942. There was no British flag on Java before establishing the ABDA command.

halfway part 3 there is a part showing a Dodge 6x6, jeeps and a CMP with a white allied star. This can only be a post-1945 scene...

I agree. I also saw in those scenes British post-1942 uniforms. I also saw post 1942 rank badges on a pilot. So the movie is a mixup from different time periods. Nevertheless very interesting indeed.
